Understanding ancient manuscripts using modern concepts in Nanoscale Science and Engineering.

Using Nanoscale Science and Engineering to explore key issues and questions:

  • When were they made?
  • What do they say? – in the broad sense.
  • Where and how were they made?
  • How do they relate to the world in which they were created?
  • Are they real?
